Ashly Lorenzana
“It's okay to disagree with the thoughts or opinions expressed by other people. That doesn't give you the right to deny any sense they might make. Nor does it give you a right to accuse someone of poorly expressing their beliefs just because you don't like what they are saying. Learn to recognize good writing when you read it, even if it means overcoming your pride and opening your mind beyond what is comfortable.”
Ashly Lorenzana

Meg Cabot
“A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle."
I really hate this expression. I bet fish would totally want bicycles.”
Meg Cabot, Princess on the Brink

Rachel Caine
“OMG OMG OMG, Shane is totally crushing on the new roomie! I can’t believe it. I always pictured Shane going after blond beach hotties. Who knew he liked big brains and teeny little bodies? Although, to be fair, she is cute as a button. (Why do we say that? What’s so cute about a button, anyway?)”
Rachel Caine, Glass Houses

Gregory Maguire
“They'd never been lovers, of course, not in the physical sense. But they'd been lovers as most of us manage, loving through expressions and gestures and the palm set softly upon the bruise at the necessary moment. Lovers by inclination rather than by lust. Lovers, that is, by love.”
Gregory Maguire, Out of Oz

Christopher Hitchens
What word or expression do you most overuse? Re-reading a collection of my stuff, I was rather startled to find that it was 'perhaps.”
Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A Memoir

Alan Bradley
“Either way, the whole thing was a pain in the porpoise.”
Alan Bradley, I Am Half-Sick of Shadows

Jaclyn Moriarty
“P.P.S. AND YOU CAN TALK. "Just say the word." JUST SAY THE WORD? What kind of expression is that? WHAT WORD WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO SAY ANYWAY? MORON?

Letter from Emily to Charles.”
Jaclyn Moriarty

Sanhita Baruah
“That was the thing about her. When you told her about an incident where you so badly screwed up, half expecting her to laugh at you in amusement, half anticipating a smirk of disgust, she would hardly express her pity or maybe she did express what she felt, for she would just nod her head, gesturing you to go on... As if it's normal... As if you're normal.”
Sanhita Baruah

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Few realize how loud their expressions really are. Be kind with what you wordlessly say.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Making Wishes: Quotes, Thoughts, & a Little Poetry for Every Day of the Year

Martin Amis
“He frowned. She laughed. He brightened. She pouted. He grinned. She flinched. Come on: we don’t do that. Except when we’re pretending. Only babies frown and flinch. The rest of us just fake with our fake faces.
He grinned. No He didn’t. If a guy grins at you for real these days, you’d better chop his head off before he chops off yours. Soon the sneeze and the yawn will be mostly for show. Even the twitch.
She laughed. No she didn’t. We laugh about twice a year. Most of us have lost our laughs and now make do with false ones.
He smiled.
Not quite true.
All that no good to think, no good to say, no good to write. All that no good to write.”
Martin Amis, London Fields

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Smile wide to receive many smiles in return. But if you want a good laugh, smirk like a wicked, little imp and watch the range of expressions you're flashed.”
Richelle E. Goodrich

Helen Oyeyemi
“And that was what all the expressions felt like— masks. I didn’t believe them. They were too thorough, too nuanced; they were never at odds with his subject matter.”
Helen Oyeyemi, Mr. Fox

Amit Kalantri
“Few moments are so special that they should be recognized by special expressions.”
Amit Kalantri, One Bucket of Tears

Neal Shusterman
“On my fifteenth birthday, I came to realize that the expression spoiled rotten meant exactly that. We kids were the apples of our parents' eyes, and I, for one, was rotting from inside out.”
Neal Shusterman, Dread Locks

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“The only thing I can recall is that it rained all day and all night, and that when I asked my father whether heaven was crying, he couldn't bring himself to reply. Six years later my mother's absence remained in the air around us, a deafening silence that I had not yet learned to stifle with words.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

“What the fuck everlasting?!”
Goldy Moldavsky, Kill the Boy Band

He rejected traditional religious beliefs (Jewish, Christian, and Islamic) not on the basis of any reasoned argument, nor even with an expression of emotional antipathy, for he loved to use religious expressions and metaphors, but simply by saying that they are naive.”
Walter J. Moore, Schrodinger: Life and Thought

Bear Step
“Nothing touches your skin of sweat
(meltdown of oceanic kisses)
when the purple light
whispers to the moon
in silent moonlit clarity”
Bear Step

“I'm not the first one to point out that George Lucas used plastic helmets to cover the faces of the storm troopers in Star Wars, in order to make them more inhuman, as their eyes and faces were not visible. In our times, we are getting a more modern version of Lucas's Stormtroopers, thanks to the popular nerve toxin Botox. This is something more and more people who are past their middle age are happily injecting into themselves - more specifically, into their faces. Botox causes local paralysis (it is a nerve toxin, after all), which smoothes out wrinkles. Unfortunately, it also means you can no longer use some of your facial muscles, as you are paralyzed. This means you're not only getting the skin of a Barbie doll, you're getting its range of facial expressions too.”
Henrik Fexeus, The Art of Reading Minds

Richelle E. Goodrich
“I do listen. I just wait for the words to stop and your eyes to speak.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Slaying Dragons

“Peace, Love, and Happiness, are the priceless treasures of life.”

Aniruddha Sastikar
“Every individual is an author in himself. It is only that he falls short of words to express; list of stories.”
Aniruddha Sastikar

“Carrie Underwood, take the wheel-I was not okay.”
Goldy Moldavsky, Kill the Boy Band

Franklin Gillette
“When the peace in not inside, we seek it outside. When the peace is not outside, we turn inside. Whether there is internal peace or an internal storm, it spirals outward to everyone you see and everything you touch.”
Franklin Gillette, Compatibility: The Code of Harmony for Love and Unity

Amaka Imani Nkosazana
“Take some time and figure out what you desire most from life. Wherever your desire is, your heart will be also. Seek the opportunity to become greater than your circumstances. You may not be where you want to be. But if you continue pushing forward and striving at a steady pace, you'll get there. All things take time.”
Amaka Imani Nkosazana, Sweet Destiny

“Landscapes, even when their general type is similar, are capable of as many expressions as the same type of human face, and, without our being able fully to tell why, affect our spirits as we look at them with as many moods and meanings.”
William Hurrell Mallock, In An Enchanted Island: Or A Winter's Retreat In Cyprus

Lailah Gifty Akita
“There is nothing better than expressions in words.”
Lailah Gifty Akita, Think Great: Be Great!

“Love without expression is useless.”
Sunday Adelaja

“Keep my word' is such a strange expression. At first glance, it just means 'Be true to what you agreed on. But it could also mean, 'Hold your words back.' Keep them in. Let your actions speak instead.”
Peter Gould, Write Naked
